I've recently bought a 2011 model Tiger 800xc. My bike came with a Leovince L Sbk exhaust on it. On the service we've checked software updates and we saw that there are 2 updates: for standard exhaust and arrow exhaust. Since leoovince is performance exhaust we've choosen update for arrow model. I don't know if the mapping of arrow matches with leovince. Should I choose the mapping for standard exhaust?

Thanks for your help.
Welcome to the asylum.

Read this thread and if that doesn't answer your question, ask again in that thread and someone will know.

Those are fully-adjustable.

The last set of forks I had apart, ~8yrs ago, were non-adjustable like the T800. They didn't require a spring compressor.

Hell, dig in. The worst thing that can happen is you have to put 'em back together.

Heated grips!

Buddy of mine just picked up his new Triumph 800XC and had the factory Triumph heated grips installed. We were out for a cool blast on the weekend at 25F. His grips didn't seem very warm even on the high setting. We checked my cheap $85. Oxfords and they we almost burning my hands on the highest setting. His grips were just barely warm. Not sure if this is the same on all factory heated grips but if so, save some bucks and install the Oxfords. May want to check with other Triumph owners on this topic.

I agree. I did a "How to" about connecting the electrics for the Oxford ones. http://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,7459.0.html

My new MRA Explorer screen out in the light.



It works great. Didn't seem to matter where I adjusted it, all was smooth airflow behind it.

Good deal? To many miles for the price ? Worth it to just ge a new one ?
I like the price. Don't like the mileage but it has been serviced on regular basis by dealer. Let me know what u think
do the math on farkels and such. it could be a good deal... 20,0000 isn't a lot of miles in my opinion. not for these bikes.

I've contacted leovinceusa and this is their reply: Our systems especially slip-ons need no mapping changes and run on stock settings.

Yeah, I think the conventional wisdom is that you don't need to do a remap for slip-ons. Plus the Arrow map yields worse gas mileage, so I'd switch it back when you have a chance.

My factory heated grips are way hot on high, and barely hot on low. So my only complaint is the lack of something in the middle.

The factory grips on my Sprint are plenty hot on high. Thought that low was fine also. It really depends on what gloves I wear and the outside temp. I do not care for the actual grip itself. I'm going to try something other than the OEM Triumph ones for the Tiger.

I use the arrow map with my LeoVince. It is noticeably better than standard tune.

I always keep the decibel killer installed.
That post was merged from another topic. Somebody gets off on merging T8 threads.

I rode a demo 800XC with the LeoVince and the insert was not installed. I thought it sounded awesome. When I bought my 800XC, I had them install the same setup. After my first or second ride, I put the insert in an have never looked back. I found that it was really droney for my tastes. That, plus I was heading into the Sierras and wanted to be USFS legal. It was nice that LV included several inserts with the pipes.
